IDEAS AND DIRECTIONS

Providing quality and high-grade fertilizer products and sticking to plant nutrition stewardship are always Yonfer’s priority concerns. For decades, with the spirit of craftsmanship and guidance of soil management and plantation nutrition, the company has been aiming to lead the industry and to contribute to food security and grower’s revenue increases, through bringing out the best fertilizer products in China, the ones that are most welcomed by growers.

To meet the market demands and industry trend, our R&D focuses on regional and crop specific fertilizers, which aims to improve nutrient use efficiency, crop quality and yield, as well as the soil conditions. Besides, other R&D fields also include the research, development, processing technique, quality monitoring, and technical services of slow release fertilizers, stabilized fertilizers, water soluble, bio-organics, microbial fertilizer, soil conditioners and other specialty fertilizers. 

R&D Platform and Operation Mechanism

Yonfer integrated the best internal and external resources, such as national high-tech enterprise, national-level key laboratory, post-PhD working station, Yonfer-CAU new-type fertilizer R&D center, to our research and development, including top outsider R&D organizations, product centers in our subsidies, and joint programs with celebrated universities. Our R&D centers are well equipped with more than 90 sets R&D equipment, and a dozen of pilot experiment equipment, in over 4,000m2 facility.

In 2017, we established a national key lab on specific fertilizers authorized by the Ministry of Agriculture, which aims to introduce regional and crop specific fertilizers that improve nutrient use efficiency, crop yields and quality, as well as the soil conditions, to lead the industry developing from single market oriented to crop needs oriented, and to further upgrade the fertilizer industry and provide technical support to agricultural sustainability.

R&D Team

Yonfer’s R&D team are our rich source of innovations, consists of senior engineer and doctors, based in national R&D labs, and celebrated agriculture universities. They are young, dynamic professionals, which consists of more than sixty researchers, including five doctors and 24 master’s degree, on average on their thirties.

 

Our R&D team are also supported by world leading experts and consultants from top research organizations, they are:

Ø  Team of academicians of China Agriculture University and National Nutrient Management and Coordination Network, consists of nineteen experts

Ø  National Academician Yuan Longping, Father of Hybrid Rice

Ø  Mr. Luc Maene, former Director General at International Fertilizer Industry Association

Ø  Dr. Prem Bindraban, Executive Director of Virtual Fertilizer Research Center, International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC)

Ø  Dr. Wolfram Zerulla, BASF SE Germany

Ø  Prof. Susanne Schmidt of University of Queensland

Ø  Dr. Matthew Redding, with Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, Queensland Government, Australia

 

Meanwhile, Yonfer signed a strategic cooperation agreement with National Agricultural Technology Extending Service Center (NATESC) of Ministry of Agriculture, to promote Yonfer’s specific fertilizers pilots nationwide. We also work together with global leading fertilizer companies in R&D, like Compo Expert GmbH, ICl, BASF SE, among others, to create joint programs for R&D and talents training.


R&D Outcomes

  • Yonfer’s product portfolio is highly diversified, with over 200 products, making us the most integrated fertilizer provider in phosphate compound fertilizer industry. Our products include specialty fertilizer brand Baibeibang, ecological fertilizer Yangfeng sulphur series, instant and slow-release fertilizer Sudao series, water-soluble fertilizer Jianhui, to name just a few.

    Meanwhile, we focused on specific fertilizers based on regional and crop conditions since 2010. For now, we have developed more than 90 basic formulas, applied to 23 kinds of crops, covering an area of 31,900,000 Mu, widespread in China’s thirteen provinces. And the results of these specific products are rather rewarding and encouraging. The crops applied our specific products saw an average of 10% increase in yields, and farmer revenues added over 9.55 billion yuan.
